Many parents are unaware that harmful UV rays can penetrate through car windows, putting their children in danger of severe consequences such as skin cancer and photoaging.  Although UVB rays are effectively blocked by glass, car windows have been proven to let in more than 60 percent of UVA rays. When this is added to the daily accumulation of sun exposure, children can be seriously at risk. 

Bibs n Stuff UV Alert ShadeThe UV Alert Shade from BRICA is a must for protecting children from these harmful UVA rays when travelling in the car.  Not only does the Shade help to filter UVA rays, it also cleverly alerts parents to the current UV level – the tab at the bottom of the Shade changes to light blue when low UV levels are present and dark blue when levels are high.  The UV Alert Shade also keeps children more comfortable in the car by shielding them from bright sunlight and glare.  When not needed, the Shade rolls up with an easy one-push release button and with its two attachment options, it fits most vehicle windows. 

Bibs n Stuff Stretch to Fit ShadeWith the UV Alert Shade constantly highlighting the current level of UV rays coming through the car window, it is also likely that parents will become more aware about the everyday dangers posed by the sun.  

Another useful car window shade from BRICA is the Stretch to Fit Shade.  Made from Opti-View™ Mesh, this Shade blocks the bright sun and its glare, with the advantage of not blocking the view out of the window.  Being stretchy, the Shade increases in size by up to 50% allowing parents to create a custom fit for most window shapes.  Two Stretch to Fit Shades can even be combined to create one extra-large shade that is ideal for stretching across the back window.  The Stretch to Fit Shade attaches to the window with BRICA’s extremely strong Push-Lock™ Suction Caps, so there’s no risk that the shade will become detached.
